AIR NAVIGATION (CHARGES) REGULATIONS (AMENDMENT) 1992 NO. 253

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

STATUTORY RULES 1992 No. 253

Issued by the authority of the Minister for Shipping and Aviation Support

Air Navigation (Charges) Act 1952

Air Navigation (Charges) Regulations (Amendment)

Subsection 6(1) of the Air Navigation (Charges) Act 1952 (the Act) provides that the Governor-General may make regulations for the purposes of the Act.

The Act provides for the payment of landing charges at aerodromes that are either maintained, operated or provided by the Commonwealth or in respect of the maintenance or operation of which financial assistance is provided by the Commonwealth. Section 5 of the Act provides that charges are payable in accordance with the Air Navigation (Charges) Regulations (the Regulations). The rate of landing charges is set out in regulation 12 and in the Schedule to the Regulations.

The amendments to the Regulations substitute the Schedule with a new Schedule. The new Schedule:

       removes aerodromes that are no longer financially supported by the Commonwealth; and

       raises the maximum rate of charge from $6.00 to $7.00 per 1,000 kilograms at Local Ownership Plan aerodromes, and from $12.00 to $14.00 per 1,000 kilograms at Commonwealth aerodromes.

The increases in charges are part of a progressive movement of the rates of charge towards full recovery on a location specific basis.

The amended Regulations commence on 1 August 1992.
